Abstract:

The fundamental problem is whether a serious threat to the US Armys traditional command and control exists because of proposed plans by a government employee union to organize military personnel. Several facets of the Armys personnel structure is examined, including its traditional ethnic and class composition and its career and non-career mix. The conclusion is drawn that the threat is minimal to the active Army, but serious to that 40 portion of the total force comprising the reserve components, by reason of large numbers of full time technicians holding key unit positions who are members of unions.
